Last Minute Valentine’s EscapesAuthor:Lindsey Shook
It’s been nearly a year now of staying inside, following proper guidelines and taking careful precautions for ourselves and others. Some of us have ventured out on soul cleansing road trips, but most of us are due for some serious TLC. With many states lifting stay-at-home orders and allowing hotels and dining to reopen—and Valentine’s Day falling on the three-day President’s Weekend—that gives us three glorious days for a pampering escape. Here are a few of our favorite last minute getaways, from a romantic “love lockdown” in Jackson Hole to a spirited “single AF” Galentine getaway in the City of Angels.
Get away for the long weekend for a special “Love Lockdown” at this gorgeous LEED-built Forbes 4-star luxury boutique hotel in Jackson Hole. The hotel offers bespoke winter wonderland such as Snow Shoeing and Stargazing in the Grand Tetons, Snow Mobiling through Yellowstone, skiing, ice hiking and more, to cozying up by the fire in the romantic Sacajawea Library with a handcrafted cocktail. Package includes:
- Three nights in a King room or Suite, with fireplace, spa-inspired bathrooms with soaking tubs
- Daily breakfast in the hotel’s award-winning signature restaurant FIGS
- Luxury roundtrip transportation to/from Jackson Hole Airport & Hotel Jackson
- Bottle of Wyoming Whiskey and his & hers shot glasses
- Rooftop hot tub for two by reservation
- Full buyout of the 58-room & suite hotel beginning at $40k for those who really want their privacy.
